Whoever pursues righteousness and unfailing love will find life, righteousness and honor. – (Proverbs 21:21, NLT)
Whoever pursues justice and treats others with kindness discovers true life marked by integrity and respect. – (Proverbs 21:21, VOICE)
Whoever goes hunting for what is right and kind finds life itself – glorious life! – (Proverbs 21:21, MSG)
Whatever we seek, we will find. If we seek the things of God – righteousness, justice, kindness and unfailing love, that is what we will find in Him. Our lives are evidenced by that which we invest our hearts and our time. As we follow after our Heavenly Father and the things of Him, His attributes are made evident through us by His Spirit in us. Those who seek to live justly and strive to treat others with kindness, earn the respect of those around them and make the Lord’s love known. May we ever pursue what is right and kind, and live well the life that God intended for us to live.
Whatever we seek,
We also shall find;
For God is faithful,
So loving and kind.
As we seek live right,
God’s faithful to hear;
He grants us His love,
As we choose draw near.
Most glorious life,
Of love and respect;
Is ours to pursue,
As the Lord directs.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that when we seek You and that which You call us to, You meet us with Your unfailing love and see us as righteous before You. Thank You for Your forgiveness and grace that gives us the opportunity to seek and find life in You. Forgive us for not pursuing justice or treating others with the kindness You intended. Teach us to trust You more, so that we would pursue a life of righteousness and unfailing love that ever honors You. Show us how to love others with kindness and grace, so that they may see and understand Your righteousness and desire a life in You. May many come into a lasting relationship with You, Lord. Be glorified O God, as we pursue righteousness and unfailing love, extending the very things given to us, to those around us. Amen.
Listen… be wise, and keep your heart on the right path. – Proverbs 23:19
